The purpose of this paper is to critique the current manner in which cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is delivered, with a focus on the impact of evidence-based practice.
This paper is based upon the experiences, ideas and clinical practice of the authors.
The reductionist approach based on psychiatric diagnosis is put forward as the mechanism by which CBT has gradually lost its status as a form of psychotherapy.
An alternative framework based on revitalising CBT as a client centred, problem-based and formulation driven form of therapy is put forward.
